Four of us had their BBQ plates any the food was good, but we all referred BBQ with more of the smoke flavor. The service was ok, and the people were nice. It closes at 7pm so we are fast, and no beer or wine is served.

The old guy was there... he's a tradition of smoked meat and worth the stop. Sides were mediocre, pork rocked with conplexi6of flavor. Go early.

Tasty hot sausage and barbecued brisket that melts in your mouth. The building is small, but there is great waiting for you inside.

It's Memorial Day and so we're out for an authentic bbq to celebrate! We found this small place and asked people who were coming out and they said the food was good. We tried their mutton, it's our first time to try it. And we're surprised that how tasty and delicious it was! We'll be back!

Good Stuff! Not much on ambiance but if you're after Texas BBQ, just about any setting will do! Good sliced beef and sausage and great sauce. Sides are all great! Easy access on and off hey. 71!

Had chopped beef, pinto beans and potato salad. They were out of Cole slaw. Beans nothing special. Potato salad is commercial. Expanding the building. More room, better lit, new bathroom. Fresh bread. Good iced tea.

Others BBQ places have come & gone from Bastrop but Billy's continues to be #1 for us & our family N friends that come to visit from out of town. When I'm head out to visit that always request that I bring Billy's with me. Small, hometown style place with lots of flavor!

Not a whole lot of atmosphere, maybe 12 tables too. A small hole in the wall BBQ joint. But let me tell you they have some great BBQ. I stopped in one day on a full stomach just because I don't live close and I'm always looking for a new bbq joint. I purchased a small amount brisket and that's... More
